The Top 10 Doctor Who Companions

8. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart

Most of the Doctor’s companions have been ordinary people in their respective cultures.  His first two companions (discounting his granddaughter) were schoolteachers.  Clara is a nanny.  Rose was a store clerk.  Even characters from other cultures, and even the future, are usually ordinary people, at least when they join the Doctor.  The Brigadier, however, is a British officer, often able to use his resources to come to the Doctor’s aid.  This created a really cool aspect in the show, as it was less the Doctor and his idiotic companions getting captured and more of a team overcoming alien dangers.  He first appeared with the second Doctor, but appeared primarily with the third, while he was exiled on Earth.

    • I don’t consider River a regular companion. More of a recurring guest star. The Brigadier would’ve been the same except he was a regular with the third Doctor.

      As to Rose, I honestly don’t think she’s top ten material. I like her, and I think she’s a good character, but I just don’t think she’s as good as the others on this list. I honestly thought Billie Piper was much better in the Fiftieth Anniversary. I’d love to see her playing a character with that type of personality.

  1. Ok, I get what you are saying about River.

    Now about Rose. One of the things that makes her the best in my opinion is the story development. It starts off with a girl that is basically pacifist, and a man who is out for revenge. In the end they are able to help each other out in there way of thinking, she can fight in times that need it, and he can show compassion to even his worst enemy’s.

    And there is also the part that you don’t see with any of the other companions, was when she realizes that she has just ran away with a man that she dose not even know, trusting him with her life. Now she tells him to take her back, until she finds out she can trust him. And another thing… This is fun, keep it coming! :)
